    “The plague of government is senile delinquency.”-– Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960

    “In a state-run society the government promises you security. But it’s a false promise predicated on the idea that the opposite of security is risk. Nothing could be further from the truth. The opposite of security is insecurity, and the only way to overcome insecurity is to take risks. The gentle government that promises to hold your hand as you cross the street refuses to let go on the other side.” ~Theodore Forstmann

    Ah, here we go;

    “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
    ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    But let us again step back further, for that panoramic view and remember this:
    There can be no justice in a stolen land.

    The question then should be, since no man, no tribe, no collective has ever found justice, or justness upon their stolen lands, who then stole the land and who did they steal it from?

    I suspect evictions come soon…

    “Socrates: Have you noticed on our journey how often the citizens of this new land remind each other it is a free country?
    Plato: I have, and think it odd they do this.
    Socrates: How so, Plato?
    Plato: It is like reminding a baker he is a baker, or a sculptor he is a
    Socrates: You mean to say if someone is convinced of their trade, they have no need to be reminded.
    Plato: That is correct.
    Socrates: I agree. If these citizens were convinced of their freedom, they would not need reminders.”

    “People liked to be liked, they like to be right, and they like to be free—in that order.” Thus, most people will give up their need to be right or free if their need to be liked is threatened.”—Anonymous professor

    Incompetent mistrial? or something else entirely? I’m going with something else entirely… Mock trials are a significant part of history…
